Silvers seem to be popular with Trinty Bomb One inserts, some guys been messing with M3's with Bomb One inserts as they seem to be a nice combination oof traction, steering and easy to drive and the stand by rear Soft Panther slicks with the Panther soft or med/soft ground to slicks.

Thanks. I had some luck on my side as I didn't have a good setup last night and just wheeled it. Dans car was really good and everyone else had the track down as well. It was very close racing last night. The layout was alot of fun and very flowing.

If you would drive my car I don't think you would say its fun to drive. I had to really drive hard to keep it from sliding so much. I really did have my hands ful no matter what my laptimes said. I have had alot faster cars that where 100% easier to drive. The car was very unsettled in the corners all day and initial turn in was craz for me as it really wnated to oversteer going in. If I wasn't in the groove it was even worse. I actually think I have too much rear toe in.

i can relate to that...my car has loads of steering...and everytime i lift alls it wanted to do was lift on 2 wheels.
worse part is by the main its twice as bad...

research i will do to see why the car is acting like that..im thinking my tires dont help either..lol..

Brushless NASCAR was a freakin blast last night. I will probably never consider running brushed again. My speeder is acting a little funny, adding drag brake on it's own, which slowed me down a little in the turns. Otherwise tons of fun!!!!!! My TC was also good last night also, other than driver error had fun with it too, just need some more practice! Great racing everyone!!!!

I would just go thru and reset your speedo again and see if it still does it. If so just give a few clicks of forward throttle trim to help to away some drag. If you have a sintered rotor they do have more drag than bonded rotors so the 13.5 should feel closer to a stock motor.
